Historic Garden Week of Virginia
Each spring, The Garden Club of Virginia welcomes visitors to over 250 of Virginia’s most beautiful gardens, homes and historic landmarks during “America’s Largest Open House.” This 8-day statewide event provides visitors a unique opportunity to see unforgettable gardens at the peak of Virginia’s springtime color, as well as beautiful houses sparkling with over 2,000 flower arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members.
how it helps
Proceeds from the statewide event fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic gardens, and provide research fellowships for building comprehensive and ongoing records of historic gardens and landscapes in the Commonwealth. Since the first statewide tour, over $17 million has been contributed to these worthwhile causes.
